    I am buying a Samsung i550w(the one with Wifi) for a friend ..... Has anyone used that phone personally .... and what is the price of that phone ...... i found a shopkeeper selling it for 11.5 k .....

    Will it be cheaper if i buy this phone from Karnataka (Bangalore) rather than Pune(Maharashtra) because of the taxes ??????

    Any problems with this device that i should know of ???? Its a Symbian OS 9.2 S60 phone with only 330 Mhz procy .... Wont it stutter ??



    Thanks ..

    I never used that phone but from what i've seen so far samsung+symbian always manages to screw up somehow.also their firmware support is not good and i doubt if it'll ever get update . I550 have good looks though.


    Btw , any particular reason to choose this phone ?

    ^^ my friend asked for such a phone within 10000 bucks ..... initially i LOLed but gsmarena listed this as the only phone with GPS & Wifi within 200 $ ........looking at the features it was Big bang for its price tag .......

    alsol it kind of grew on me ..... No other reason .......

    ^^ true , most nokia betalabs apps wont run . Moreover , the os is pretty old version (9.2) so it'll probably be very slow (n73 uses same version). i also heard samsungs gps navigation software is not good.

    May be your friend should consider removing gps from wishlist , then he will have some good choice .

    Btw , last i heard 6220c was 11k odd at indiaplaza.in , you might consider it if you need gps. Built quality isn't good but feature is solid.
